Ercis (Turkey): Rain and snow on Thursday compounded difficulties for thousands rendered homeless in the powerful earthquake that hit eastern Turkey, and the government said the death toll has gone up to 523.

The prime minister’s centre for crisis and emergency management said 1,650 people were injured and 185 were rescued from the rubble.

Turkish authorities delivered more tents after acknowledging initial problems in the distribution of aid for survivors of the 7.2-magnitude quake that shattered at least 2,200 buildings on Sunday.

Germany also dispatched supplies, including tent heating units. (UNI)
